Birmingham's Groves High School students volunteer at area schools for Make a Difference Day

Nearly 40 students from Groves High School recently volunteered their time to help with projects at two Detroit schools in honor of Make a Difference Day.

Most of the volunteers are members of the Groves student organizations AACT (African Americans Changing Tomorrow), Interact Club, and Groves Student Congress.

“Our amazing team of students worked diligently and represented Groves and Birmingham Public Schools at the highest standard,” said Liz Sak, community service organizer at Groves. “We thank our students for their time and hard work and appreciate Counselor Norman Hurns for organizing this great service experience for our kids.”

At Emerson Elementary & Middle School, volunteers helped to clear out a small auditorium that was filled with boxes of curriculum materials and organize them on designated shelves so Emerson staff and students could make better use of the space. At Dossin Elementary-Middle School, volunteers worked on paper shredding, clearing out garbage and moving large items out of storage areas in the building.

The relationships built between Groves, Emerson, and Dossin schools continue to strengthen community ties.

“I’m proud of our students for taking time from their day to help others and make a difference,” said Birmingham Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Embekka Roberson. “These acts of service to our community embody the good will and integrity we encourage as a National District of Character.”
